Papadopolous: The FBI Was Tracking Me in Europe

‘There’s a badge in my face that this is the FBI, you should come with us’
By Grabien Staff

STEPHANOPOULOS: You then go to Europe, spend much of the spring in Europe, and do you believe at that time the FBI was still tracking you?

PAPADOPOULOS: I believe so, yes.

STEPHANOPOULOS: And you came back in July when you were arrested upon your return. Tell us about what happened when you arrested and then questioned by Robert Mueller’s agents?

PAPADOPOULOS: The day of the arrest?


PAPADOPOULOS: So I was flying in from Athens, via Munich and my touchdown in Dulles Airport in Washington and I'm texting or messaging my girlfriend at the time and I'm letting her know that there's people watching me here at the airport. There's something very odd, you know, there's some gentlemen in a suit and red tie and they're just staring at me while everybody else is exhausted off a transAtlantic flight.

I get to the kiosk where I'm attempting to put my passport in the kiosk to get my visa to re-enter the country and I am -- there's a badge in my face that this is the FBI, you should come with us.
